Only during a pandemic do these issues arise. Carol Goodman, chair of the employment practice at Herrick Feinstein, noted that the firm has been receiving a number of inquiries lately from companies thinking about hosting a wine tasting or other social engagement for clients. After all, with vaccination rates increasing, businesses are eager to begin meeting face to face with clients again. Yet some are still unsure about what kinds of admissions requirements they can put in place. Can they ask for proof of vaccination?

The answer might depend on where you are asking the question. “In a situation like [the wine tasting], you really have to look at the guidance for your industry. What does your industry do? And in states like New York, what can you require?” Goodman said.
